How to clear your Gmail inbox

Now that you're done let's do something about the ever-rising counter against unread emails. I suggest using Gmail filtering features to automatically select certain emails without erasing them. This is best used for things like receipts from services that you often use, such as Uber, Venmo, Netflix, or Apple. Start by clicking on one of these emails. Click the three-point icon in the top left, followed by "Filter messages like these." On the next screen, click "Create Filters" and then select "Mark as Read." If you have a lot of unread e-mails, you can also check the box that says "Apply also filters for matching conversations." Finish the process by clicking "Create filter". If you need to edit or remove filters, you can find all of them by clicking the gear in the top right of the screen and selecting "Settings." You can find all your filters by clicking "Filter and blocked addresses". WATCH: Here's how to learn what Google knows about you and restrict data collecting
